Completely agree. Having said that, most people here don't play by the real rules. They just put water in the cups and drink out of their own beer

Much more sanitary that way
Yeah, that's so much better. I was a bit grossed out by the dirt from the ping pong ball in the beer, though they did rinse the ball in a cup of water before tossing it.

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

I really can't decide yet, sorry

Had a real nice chat with The Bulldog during my heartbreaking exit. But we go back way longer Pirata. I'm still leaning towards you, but wasn't ready to decide

PS: look at that post count. I don't want to post to ruin it

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

This is getting interesting

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.

-Me taking part in my first MTF contest, blasting through the draw until facing a candidate to GOAT MTF clown with no ACC title yet in Start da Game, getting off to a tremendous start but eventually losing by a hair.

Young upstart losing to legend en route to missing resumé piece. - check

-Del Potro getting a dose of reality, getting crushed by Hewitt in the next Slam, three routine sets.
-Mark Lenders getting routed by Hewitt =Legend in Popcon. 39-14.

Back to reality. - check


I hope the symmetry continues with me winning the next big event, and then breaking my wrist and beginning to type with only one hand.

You will be peaking in the next 2/3 years imo.

I don't mind though because you're doing a great job on here making friends with people from different fanbases, being creative (I don't even know how to make a youtube video ), posting good tennis commentary, bringing the lols... all without trashing anyone.

There was some silly thread here a while back about how all the great posters are gone/banned from MTF, but looking at the names left in the Popcon draw I'd say we are doing just fine.


Thanks and well said.

Don't understand why newbies like me can't vote? Such a welcoming place this MTF.

Hi se7en, nice username, first time we talk, am I right?

MTF has a sad story about double accounts, I don't know if there were past cases in contests, but it's actually a good rule for that.
I know, the tournament is a funny thing, but if you read this whole thread, it's taken pretty seriously

It was for no particular reason, just didn't want to spend money on it, wanted to rather spend it on my woman! But anyways, we were at a Halloween party just a little while ago, and she got drunk and she smoked just a bit and it didn't really do anything for her. So I suggested that I would go buy some and I would let her try it. (damn bong cost me like 50 bucks by itself -.-) but anyways, she tried it and she loved it, haha. And since I hadn't smoked in so long, it felt like I got high for the first time.

Long story short, definitely a fun and different feeling. I can't imagine getting high every day like some people, but for me I think maybe once a week when I have a good block of time while my son is asleep for the night is good enough for me.

Try it and you'll understand Don't give me that "drugs are bad" bullshit. Addiction is bad, drugs just like any other substance (alcohol, tobacco, etc) will not affect you really if used in moderation.
